A brown tumor of the tibia occurred in a 49-year-old woman on dialysis with chronic renal failure. This lesion was the first clinical or radiographic indication of bone involvement. Although serum levels of calcium and phosphorus are often well regulated by dialysis, clinical or radiologic evidence of a brown tumor may prove to be the first sign of renal osteodystrophy in patients with chronic renal failure.
